Quantcast
I have 26 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Default Anyone Trading Emini's?

    I've traded Emini futures in the past and really enjoyed it. I plan to again at some point too. Is anyone else here trading them currently? I'm interested to hear what broker and platform you prefer. I've used AMP Futures and Ninja Trader. PM me if you aren't comfortable with a public reply, but a public reply would probably answer this question and/or generate more info from other users.

    Once upon a time we had a prolific E-mini trader named "spikefader". He was brilliant. But he is currently MIA. Maybe Ernie can put you in touch.

    Brilliant sure helps! Thanks for the info.

    Check out the Head and Shoulders forming on the daily NASDAQ e-minis.

    Seeing some weakness? Do you trade them? I'm not currently trading them, but when I was the Nasdaq didn't provide as many opportunities as the S&P.

    I used to be a daytrader, and I absolutely love TradeStation. Of the charting packages I have used (ESignal, Ameritrade ThinkOrSwim, Worden TC2000, Vector Vest), itís easily my favorite and, I believe, the most complete (top notch charting, scanning, trading, and option analytics). My only knock against them is that their customer service can be a little sketchy. As far as the platform goes, however, itís extremely powerful, and an excellent tool for trading futures. One of the reasons I like it so much is because of the Easy Language programming engine. You can build extremely powerful scanners and automated trading engines if you have an affinity for programming and youíre willing to put the time in. Except for my hiatus as a daytrader, I was a software engineer for my career, so itís right up my alley. If youíre not into the programming side of things, ThinkOrSwim might be a better choice, and it has excellent option analytics too. If you have money to burn and youíre into advanced studies like Elliot Waves, eSignal is an awesome charting platform. If youíre into scanning, TC2000 is a great tool and the scans are easier to program then TradeStation. Neither eSignal or TC2000 are great trading platforms, however, IMHO. ThinkOrSwim has a decent trading engine and TradeStation is the best. What do you use?

    Oh, and BTW, I never answered your first question. Yes, I am seeing a lot of weakness in the e-minis right now. I definitely donít see this is a good time to be trading long.

    I've used NinjaTrader to trade e-mini's. It was a lot of fun, fit my life and work schedule very well to trade for the first few hours of the market day and then move on. I've never looked at TradeStation. I'll have to check that out.

    As I am getting ready to re-immerse myself into TradeStation, I was checking out NinjaTrader. It's an impressive looking platform.
